ENGLAND captain, Harry Kane, has shot into the lead with a haul of five goals – after two group matches – in his quest to wear the Golden Boot.
That haul puts him one goal ahead of Portugal captain, Cristiano Ronaldo (with whom he shares the only hattricks, so far) – and Spain’s striker, Diego Costa.
Should Kane maintain that pace, not only could he win the Golden Boot, but also, he would then be able to make history with England, which last won the ultimate prize a century, ago, specifically 1966 when they hosted the world.
Given his form, so far, and the inherent potential fortunes for his compatriots, ekowasmahsports.com reproduce, below, Kane’s brave quest captured right ahead of the team’s first match at Russia 2018:

And Kane says he is ready to show the entire planet what he is all about.
‘Four years ago, I was watching it on holiday. I played the last six or seven games of the Premier League season under Tim Sherwood,’ Kane said.
‘Mauricio Pochettino came in that summer and got me fit, in better shape and more powerful. I kicked on from there.
‘A lot of hard work and determination, there were players ahead of me at the time. I had to work hard on the training pitch and take the opportunities when they came.
‘The last few years I’ve proved and now I’m here, and can’t wait to get out there and show the world what I’ve got.’
